Damned by change bandits

Posted on Mon, Jan 16, 2012 at 11:38 AM

Enough is enough. Is there no place safe from people asking me for money? From the "Would you like to support ______" and "Would you like to buy a ticket in support of _________?"Oh and let's not forget the gangs of youths that collect near a table at the exits of department stores and grocery stores asking for our money... now there's a new one at stores: "Would you like me to round that total up to the nearest dollar to support _______?" I work hard for my money. If I wanted to throw money away, don't you think I would at least buy something with it? These charities are getting to be too many and too demanding. We need a month where no charity is allowed to harrass us for our change. —Get Out of My Damn Pockets
